Finding

Standard

On the path

 Headed the same direction.

Sometimes we cross.

Sometimes we touch.

Sometimes we gaze.

All of us finding our way.

Well Worn

Standard

I touch
You

And in that instance

We are

Every emotion,

Memory

Imaginable.

Immersed in eternity itself.

My insides trembling

With

Awareness

Grazing lips feather light

Fervent heartbeats

Against

Skin so soft

And there we are

Holding

Unfaltering

Your eyes upon my

Bare heart

As you too quake in

Awareness

Remembering;
There was a

Well worn path between

Our being

All along.

Division

Standard

Waiting.

I asked you to slow down,

I could not keep up.

So you trudged on ahead

Never looking back

And i lost sight of you

Out there.
I came to a division of many

paths

Where i took a moment to rest,

My strength dwindling.

And i waited.

I waited

And i counted the stars.

I took shelter in the trees

Thinking

At any moment

You might return

To me.
I woke to a cold frost 

And realized i could not stay without nourishment and shelter

Through more seasons.

And had to choose a path

One that did not lead me to you

But

Mountain top

Where i could see

Many other peaks in front of

Me.

And there my whole body

Was filled with a sense of 

Possibility.

Much time went by

And you found me

But you were angry

I did not wait longer for your return.

I will no longer apologize for the natural need to take care of myself.
And on I went without you 

On to the next valley

And on to the next peak

And i took my own breath away

As each day i

Stood up.

Renewed

Standard

And now I lie naked.
Naked in the earth.
Everything I have carried
In me,
Stripped from
My heart
And
Removed from my soul.
Washed clean.

And I feel the wind.
I breathe the air.
I taste the dirt on my lips.
I am settled in my skin.

Renewed.

The time has come to

Arise and set my feet gently on the path before me.

Let this new journey

Begin.
